Poems of Awakening

Poems of Awakening is a collection of poems to be read during savasana. Savasana, also known as the death pose, is meant for deep relaxation. The book is divided into seven parts: My Body Effervesces, Deep Quiet, Now I Become Myself, Healing and Renewal, May My Heart Always Be Open, How a Beautiful Day is Spent, and The All-surrounding Grace. Each section creates a different feel and overall theme gradually relaxing and deepening the experience.

I have to admit, that I tend to practice yoga in silence. My life is chaotic so I see the mat as a bit of a refuge. I like to completely ignore the outside world and get fully immersed in each breath. With this said, I know a lot of people who swear that listening to music or poetry during a session deepens their experience. Reading through the poems in Poems of Awakening, I could definitely feel that possibility.

The way the collection is set out, teachers can pick out as many or few as they like to read to their classes. They could also record them for class use in association with music. Hopefully, at some point, the author does an audio version of this collection.
